Patterned after the well-known wartime photo of the Confederate General Robert E. Lee taken in the Richmond, Virginia studio of Vannerson & Jones, this cast iron doorstop is reminiscent of the turn of the century casting by the John Wright Co. (founded in the 1880’s) yet a close examination of this piece reveals a crudeness with pronounced cast marks not found with the finer Wright Co. examples. We believe this piece is either an early pre-production example of the John Wright, Lee doorstop or a much earlier sand casting taken from the 1863 Richmond pose and rendered by an entirely different foundry. Standing approximately 7 ˝ inches the figure offers a natural age patina as it was acquired in a Virginia estate some twenty years past. Upon the closest examination, a few tiny flex of black enamel show that the piece was originally painted. A bit of an enigma but whether a very early pre-production casting by John Wright or (wouldn’t we like to think so) a war time casting inspired by the Richmond photographer’s image of General Lee, this old cast iron doorstop is deserving of a new home as we clear away some of our many years accumulation. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
